This book is a companion for anyone wanting to explore the capital city's mythology and folklore... I think you'll enjoy peeling back the layers of history.
So, so brilliant. Absolutely loved it....Overall this is a fascinating book. It has history and legend, great references to literature and architecture, everything I could want in a non-fiction book.
The Secret Lore of London completes its siren call with an intricate and alluring cover...If you have even the smallest interest in myth, legend and London, then this is a book for you.
London is such a vast city with a long, interesting and fascinating history, so to tackle this subject is very brave and admirable. If you have an insatiable hunger for knowledge, this book will give you food for thought as it opens a wonderfully colourful world that forms the foundations of what we believe to be 'solid' history.
I have to say that I am delighted that the best material from The Aquarian Guide has been given a new lease of life, letting new readers enjoy a collection of wonderful essays that have been been long out of print. The new material makes the book even better - and the title and cover are a lot more up to date too!
A fascinating look at how our ancestors viewed their streets, and a guide to the sites of legends and myths.
